    They were both kooky characters which is usually something most straight and narrow people don't want to add. And both by the end of their tenure were reportedly discontent.

    Yet Reggie risked a 1st round pick on Conley. I don't think it was ever a hard and fast rule with him. More like a guideline.

    Yet we have listed multiple examples that disagree with that. Hell, he left Cable back on the staff despite the vaunted No DV accusers rule. And we are supposedly OK in drafting the Oklahoma RB that punched a lady.

    It definitely has been a cluster fuck. No arguments here.

    No it's not a disguised carr complaint. It's the whole QB room and the whole fucked up team, the coach, the GM and the owner.

    We get our asses kicked ever Sunday anyone happy with that needs to go because they're the problem, both of them played hard and I don't remember any locker room or off the field issues.

    Richie threatened to kill his own father, harrassed and bully teammates, attempted to kick a teammates door down yelling the N-word and threatening the player and his mother.

    Lynch running on the field to protect the Chiefs player was a great moment. I am sure the locker room loved it.

    Was Peters ever proven to be his cousin?

    Either way, it was a football fight. The refs were handling it and he ran off the bench in a frantic attempt to save his butt. Amazing how many Raiders fans defend a player that literally went to bat for a rival player. But he danced and flipped the bird so he is cool.

    He identified as his cousin. In this day and age, that's good enough.

    Exactly here in the south the term is country cousin, if someone touched one of mine I'm going to whip your ass first you're welcome to hobble over to Ancestry.com afterwards all you like.

    Except Lynch wasn't from the South.

    Still a lame justification for getting kicked out of the KC game and being suspended for the next game. Way to put the team first, asshole.

    Team loyalty isn't what it used to be if it even exists at all.

    No reason for fans to become fans of players either but most do.

    It's pretty much the same way in the East Bay (a lot of East Bay folks have Southern roots).

    Mostly I think it was dumb because it was a "look at me" thing for Marshawn. I can't think of a football fight in the history of football fights that amounted to anything. Most people would have just stood there and laughed at their boy getting into a shoving match in full pads that would have been broken up in a matter of seconds. Marshawn just wanted to show the world how hood he was, which is lame in real life let alone a football game. If he was a real one he'd have just waited until he could catch Penn in the locker room man to man and likely get his ass beat man to man.

    I am not a fan of players. I never really have been. I only care what they do on the field. I had no emotional attachment to Hudson and dont really care that he is gone. We just have to improve.

    Team loyalty has never really been a thing, if we are being honest. The NFL was founded to prevent the en masse team hopping that escalated salaries and doomed the Ohio League.

    Honestly players are about as much as we've had to root for for most of my time as a fan.

    At least back in the day I could make dumb arguments about Tim Brown being the best WR in the league, or Bo Jackson the best RB ever, Gannon was elite, we had the best punter in the league, etc. All we have left now is the best uniforms.

    Each NFL team will receive about $300m every year until 2033 for just tv revenue. Each team. Each year. Dying sport.

    Not sure, but I would think Mark should be able to afford the repairs on his Caravan now.
